Retro Saturday

Came across this magazine at my Dad's. I was cleaning and sorting through a closet of my mother's when I found a box full of knitting patterns, craft materials and a few magazines.

I can actually remember my Mom getting these and spending whatever 'free' time she could get and looking through them. I can't recall if she had a subscription to this particular one or if she bought them locally.

Anyway, I took a glance through this one and was reminded of a fellow blogger, Barbara of' If I Had A Sense Of Humor', who posts old advertisements and embellishes them with her wit and smart writing skills. Check her out here. She'd have a 'field day' with this one!

As you can see already in a couple of the photos, there were the advertisements for everything from soaps to 'gay' kitchen colours for your plastic wrap dispenser. And even mini-romance novellas!

Then I came across the obligatory Horoscope.......check your's out for 1959!

This recipe looked good enough to try out.

For all you crafty people out there, I bet you never thought of this!

And a precursor to 'on-line dating' tips......

Imagine the impact of this and all the extra time it created to do all the other things!

I find these magazines full of 'history'.....everything you ever wanted to know, and more, about a culture in a given period of time.

They certainly shed a little light on how we got to where we are today. Now for one more mini-romance/drama:
